MOODY'S ABCP RATING ACTIONS FOR THE SEVEN DAY PERIOD ENDED JULY 6, 2000

10 Jul 2000
MOODY'S ABCP RATING ACTIONS FOR THE SEVEN DAY PERIOD ENDED JULY 6, 2000 New York, July 10, 2000 -- MOODY'S ASSIGNED A PRIME-1 RATING TO THE FOLLOWING ABCP PROGRAMS DURING THE SEVEN DAY PERIOD ENDED JULY 6, 2000:

MOODY'S RATES GOLDMAN SACHS HUDSON STREET FUNDING CORP. PRIME-1
Moody's has assigned a rating of Prime-1 to ABCP to be issued by Hudson Street Funding Corp. (HSFC). HSFC is administered by Goldman, Sachs & Co. (Prime-1). HSFC, a newly created ABCP issuer, sponsored and administered by Goldman Sachs & Co. will provide part of the financing for the construction and occupancy of an office building and training center complex, to be used by Goldman Sachs for its operations, in Jersey City, New Jersey. HSFC is a special purpose company organized under the laws of the state of Delaware.

HSFC's Prime-1 rating is based on: the guaranty provided by Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (A1/P-1) (along with Goldman, Sachs & Co., collectively "Goldman Sachs") to HSFC; the structure of the underlying synthetic lease transaction that effectively leads to the full coverage of ABCP issued by HSFC by the Goldman Sachs guaranty; the financial strength of Goldman Sachs; Goldman Sachs' administrative capabilities; and Goldman Sachs' leading presence in the ABCP and commercial paper markets in general.

HSFC's Prime-1 rating is closely linked to the ratings assigned to Goldman Sachs. The rating assigned to the ABCP is primarily a function of a Goldman Sachs guaranty in its support of various lessee obligations that repay the ABCP. In the event of a downgrade of the ratings assigned to
Goldman Sachs, a review or downgrade of the rating assigned to HSFC may also take place.

For further details, please see Moody's press release dated June 29, 2000.

MOODYS ASSIGNS PRIME-1 RATING TO PRINCIPAL RESIDENTIAL MORTGAGE CAPITAL RESOURCES LLC
Moody's has assigned a rating of Prime-1 to up to $956 million of secured liquidity notes (SLNs) to be issued by Principal Residential Mortgage Capital Resources LLC (PRMC), as well as a rating of Baa2 to the $44 million Variable Rate Term Certificates (VRTs) to be issued by PRMC. PRMC is a single-seller mortgage loan warehouse facility sponsored by Principal Residential Mortgage Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Principal Financial Services, Inc. PRMC, with an authorized amount of $1 billion, will fund the purchase of mortgage loans originated by Principal Residential Mortgage Inc. from the proceeds of the SLNs and VRTs on a revolving basis. The VRTs are subordinated to the SLNs. The purchased mortgage portfolio is limited by aging requirements and concentration restrictions. As these limitations are reached, pools of mortgages will be sold or securitized. The SLNs issued by PRMC are short-term debt with an original term of 180 days, but which may be extended up to an additional 120 days under certain conditions.

The Prime-1 rating assigned to PRMC's SLNs was based in large part on the following factors: expected collateral performance; credit enhancement primarily provided by a cash collateral account and a Baa2 rated tranche of certificates, both subordinate to the SLNs; market value risk protection of non-defaulted collateral through a swap with Prime-1-rated Bank of America N.A.; liquidity support for non-delinquent and non-defaulted collateral from Prime-1-rated Bank One, N.A.; and various structural protections, including a requirement to cease issuing SLNs if the portfolio is not in compliance with aging guidelines or if the program credit enhancement is not at the required level.

For further details, please see Moody's press release dated June 30, 2000.
